#1798880: Convert teaser_length to use configuration system changes the name teaser_length to default_summary_length
For consistency should the name be changed in aggregator too?
Here's a patch.
Why 'default_' ?
From comment #3 of the original issue #1798880: Convert teaser_length to use configuration system where the name was changed:
IMHO, more suitable name for this config is 'default_summary_length', because:
1. It is summary length
2. It is default, because this setting is given when Drupal has no any information about "text field with summary" summary length. This happens when user create a "text field with summary" and didn't setup its widget settings. So, if administrator want, he can update this 'default_summary_length' config, so any new and not-configured "text field with summary" fields will use it.
But maybe it should be just "summary_length"?
Given that aggregator items are entities now, I wonder whether and why these configuration options still exist in the first place?
Why aren't we simply using field formatter settings?
i think we still need this, unless we expose the field UI for aggregator items somewhere and turn description to fields, so we keep it configurable from UI.
But i also think there is no need for the default_ prefix
